The Taketsuru Pure Malt (a non-age statement version). And here’s to drinking to a legend and a woman behind the bottle who loved and persevered. Happy Mother’s Day, Rita. Thanks for the malt.
Ebisu is quality Japanese at about the same price point as Masu in Federal St, with less fusion influence.
All the classics are there – essential Rainbow roll, karaage and sashimi. Best – the fried flounder served on the deep fried spine from which the delicate fillets were cut. No picture, no time. They disappeared too quick. Also to be appreciated, sake served in wine glasses. It reduces the temptation to throw it back hastily and encourages you to linger, savouring the unique spirit of Japan. Remember they share a kitchen with Fukuko, the fab shochu cocktail bar next door. Clever hospitality.
